Camus was working on his final novel when he died in a car crash at the rather young age of 47. He's considered one of the most influential writers of the 20th Century, namely for being the first to question and challenge reader's sympathy with protagonists and questioning the nature of motivations and the extent to which environment, personality, and ideas drive our actions and everyday life. Despite the seriousness of his work, he's considered a highly accessible writer, and he was popular in France, chiefly for the fact that his works were often short, and written in the French version of BeigeProse, and yet clear and lucid to follow.

Camus worked as a journalist and essayist, contributing a number of articles on several important issues of the day. He was particularly fascinated by the question of the death penalty, believing that execution by the state was immoral, even when the personal sentenced was guilty of the crime of murder. Such questions informed his famous works of fiction.

Politically, Camus was controversial among the French Left for his rejection of Communism, his belief that violence in any context, even in the case of revolution and resistance, was unjustified. This became problematic for Camus during the situation of the Algerian War of Independence, where he denounced violence on both sides, and equated the activities of the anti-colonialist FLN with those of the French state. This heightened his break with Sartre who argued for an uncompromising anti-colonialism, and it hurt Camus' standing among other intellectuals of the Third World such as Edward Said and Frantz Fanon.
